Ramon Bofill at Nobile & Amundsen


The work of Assistant Professor of Painting Ramon Bofill is being presented in a solo exhibition at Norfolk’s Nobile & Amundsen. The installation exhibition, Archetypes and The Uncarved Block, will be shown April 5–May 10, 2014, with an opening reception on Friday, April 4, 6:00–9:00 pm. Bofill’s work “references both Jung’s concept of primordial archetypal patterns and Lao Tzu’s “uncarved block”, a Taoist metaphor for a primordial state of being one returns to.” His pieces use “repurposed fabrics and traditional painting media result in hybrid surfaces that are a mixture of painting, tapestry and sculpture.”
